To All Good Sam’s of Florida Chapter Presidents:

This letter is to inform you there will be a Special State Committee Meeting on
Thursday March 1, 2012 at 3:00 PM at Rodeheaver Boys Ranch in Palatka in
connection with our Winter Samboree.

I am sending this letter, and the agenda to those that have an email address with
us.  For those who don’t, I will be sending a packet by regular mail.  The minutes
from the meeting in Eustis are available on the web page if you would like to
print a copy to bring to the meeting.   Please visit the web page for many
changes have been made in the past year.    www.goodsams-florida.org

All Chapter Presidents are members of the State Committee and should make
every effort to attend the Special Committee Meeting or send a representative
from your Chapter.  If you are unable to` attend the Committee Meeting and you
send a representative in your place, remember to send a letter signed by you as
President identifying that individual as your appointed representative.  Good
Sam of Florida, Inc. Constitution and by-laws Article IX:  miscellaneous section
(E) states all chapter presidents, or their designated representative will attend
at least one State Committee meeting each year.

 I urge you to please read the new Constitution and By-laws of Good Sams
effective January 1, 2012.  These  By-Laws are on the web page along with
Florida Good Sam's By-Laws under www.goodsams-florida.org under the icon of  
committee meeting.    These by-laws will be discussed and a committee needs to
be formed to update our Florida State by-laws.  At this meeting we will be
discussing the election of the State Treasurer.   In the by-laws please read
carefully the responsibilities of the state committee.
